Data Sheet

Human Nasal Mucosa Epithelial Cells (HNMEpiC) provided by Innoprot have been isolated from normal human nasal mucosa. HNMEpiC are cryopreserved as a primary culture and delivered frozen.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Nasal Mucosa Epithelial Cells which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro HNMEpiC culture.


Nasal epithelial cells form the outermost protective layer against environmental factors. The monolayer formed by these cells is pseudostratified and highly differentiated, and it shows numerous microvilli and cilia on the apical surface. NMEpiC clean, humidify, and warm inhaled air. They produce mucus, which binds particles that are subsequently transported to the pharynx by cilia on the epithelial cells. It has been shown that epithelial cells not only defend physically, but also respond by the production of inflammatory mediators that may affect local immune responses. They are used as an in vitro model for studying nasal defence mechanism. Fully polarized nasal epithelial cell monolayers are suitable in vitro models to analyze host-pathogen interactions.
